SPORTS ANCHOR TAKES A PUCK TO THE FACE

A former Panama City sports anchor is OK after getting a puck to the face during an interview on the ice rink.

Joel Sebastianelli, who used to work at WJHG, is now in Toledo. He was doing an interview with a high school hockey player when a puck came across the ice and made a direct hit with the camera.

Sebastianelli continued with the interview. The player he was interviewing stopped to react but that was it.

The station says he’s OK. The reporter had a bump on his head and a small headache.

We’re not sure what the tone of the story was supposed to be but it definitely wasn’t funny.
